Reddit user undead_mau5 shared this photo of his sweet one-eyd kitten Leela online and told her story, writing: “We’re not sure [what happened to her]. She was born on my girlfriend’s front porch and one day she went missing. We thought some animal took her and one day she came back with a badly ruptured eye. We were of course heart broken but relieved she came back. My girlfriend couldn’t afford to pay for her surgery so I volunteered to pay for it, keep her, and take care of her. Now she’s doing great and she’s such a sweetheart.”

“She’s doing wonderful. She’s so rambunctious lol. She’s running around antagonizing her brother.”

“She’s a brave girl with one eye so [her name Leela, inspired by the Futurama character,] seemed perfect.”

One commenter wrote: “The fact that people like you exist make me feel better about humanity.  Your Leela is adorable.”

Undead_mau5 replied, saying: “Thank you so much for your kind words. It’s really not too hard to be nice.”
